Description - Edgton Farm is a beautifully situated mixed farm which supports both livestock and arable enterprises. The period farmhouse and the farmyard sit at one end of the farm which lies in an elevated position to the north-west of the A49 trunk road.
The land is divided into convenient sized enclosures with roadside and internal access.

In Spring 2016 many of the windows were secondary glazed. The remaining windows are double glazed, with only one window being single glazed.


A floorplan is available from the Agent.

It comprises an area laid to lawn with a patio at the edge and shrub and flower borders, an additional large area laid to lawn with fruit trees and shrub borders, a rose bed and vegetable patch.

There is a useful greenhouse as well as a red brick outhouse used for storage.

The summerhouse shares the mains electricity supply with the farmhouse and has a spring water supply.
